7-inch Asus tablet with quad-core Intel Moorefield processor visits the FCC


Earlier this year, Intel announced its 64-bit Moorefield processors, optimized for mobile devices running the Android operating system. Today, we came across a tablet powered by one of these new chips – a 7-inch slate made by Asus. The device, listed only under the K007 model name, just appeared in the FCC's database, along with a handful of hardware specs. 

Yup, hardware specs. These are rarely listed in FCC papers we usually deal with, but in this particular case, a list of component model numbers is part of the filing. First and foremost, the chip in use is the Atom Z3560, with a quad-core processor running at up to 1.8GHz. That should be sufficient in terms of processing power for an Android 7-incher. As for the screen itself, it is of the IPS LCD variety and has a resolution of 1200 by 1920 pixels. Also, there's a couple of snappers on the device – a 5MP camera on the back and a more humble camera on the front for video chats. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS are supported, as indicated by the documents. Storage space should be either 16 or 32 gigabytes.

Interestingly, the battery capacity is said to be 15Ah, which would be outstanding for a 7-inch tablet... if true. The 2013-edition Google Nexus 7, in comparison, has a 3.95Ah battery. However, this is most likely an error, and the cell's true capacity is probably just 15Wh, which equals 3.95Ah at 3.8 volts. 

On a related note, Asus announced a trio of Intel-powered Android tablets in June. Neither of them, however, matches the specs of the tablet provided above, so the Asus K007 tablet is most likely a different device.

Any guesses what this new Asus tablet could be? A new MeMO Pad tablet, a successor to the Nexus 7 (2013), or something else? Let us know in the comments!

On a side note; Ah or mAh is not a capacity measure , Wh is.. I dont get why even manufacturers use mAh to describe a battery capacity...

Most of the phone batteries have about the same voltage so it could work. But it can screw people as well, for example gionee. They market their S5.5 with a 2500 mAh battery cell and people are blown away how could they such big battery inside... but that horrible battery life points to a subpar capacity battery with reduced voltage which increases that mAh number, which in turn fools people.

Apple uses Wh to describe the battery capacity of their iPads.

Oh what a genius you are... Wh is used to measure the total energy expended in the time frame. mAh tells you the coulumb charge stored in the battery. A genius like you should know multiplication. So here's how it goes... Q=It where Q is charge, I is current and t is time. Watt-hour is powerXtime which is energy. You can simply take the power in Watts (J/s) and multiply it by 3600 to get Wh which would practically be useless because your phone isnt using constant power but rather it differs. So i dont know what laws of physics you believe in but Wh isnt the unit for capacity. It's the unit for energy used.

Sounds Interesting.

"However, this is most likely an error, and the cell's true capacity is probably just 15Wh, which equals 3.95Ah at 3.8 volts. " Obviously! It's an 4000mAh battery, like most other 7 inch tablets.

If it's an Atom, it must be hot
